chicken scratch

I made this back in the 80's. I see gingham out there at blogs gaining some popularity again.
I wouldn't mind making this again in red or green, and just a little bit smaller. If anyone wants to try this, I could take more close ups of it to email to you.
I making very slow progress indeed on my mystery quilt. (Been working too much lately to "play") I did get 40 more blocks to look like this. Hopefully tomorrow I can work on 40 more.
My goal is to have the top done by this time next week....

I have always wanted to try Chicken Scratch. I was just talking to another blogger about that the other day. I love gingham and my mom taught me to embroidery on gingham. I guess that's why I'm partial to chicken scratch. Your piece is beautiful!

Have a great day!

Good luck on getting 40 more done. I love that one and can't wait to see all of them put together.

Is this cross stitch Marcia? I did something like that many many years ago. It looks very cozy to me (if you know what I mean?).

nice work Marcia! I'm definitely not patient with hand sewing so I am VERY impressed!
